About the Book

Teach me about Sikhism is a comprehensive thematic unit. Its 60 reproducible pages are filled with a wide variety of ideas, games, and activities designed for use with children ranging from ages 6 to 12.
The strength of this book lies in its balanced approach, which involves young learners in every aspect of the communicative process (speaking, reading, writing, listening, and drawing). In this way skills and knowledge grow quickly as children are stimulated by involvement and interest in the topic at hand. Moreover, not only are academic skills improved upon but also social skills. A development which can no longer be neglected let alone taken for granted in today's ever-communicative world. Children must learn to work cooperatively in order to be successful in modern society; and parents and teachers must do their best at including social objectives as well as academic in their child's education.
